Secret Key Thanakha Mild Sun Cream SPF47 PA+++ Review

Secret Key Thanakha Mild Sun Cream SPF47 PA+++ Review:

The sun is something that is both amazing and scary – in the way that it brightens and lightens our days and yet too much sun exposure can give us skin cancer. I guess it isn’t something that bothers or worries everyone, but as someone who lives in a place with extremely high skin cancer rates it does bother me. Because of this I’m always researching for new or different sunscreens because I never know when one will be discontinued, or whether I’ll find one that I like using more. I usually have a bunch of sunscreens on my radar that I plan to try at some stage or another and I found this sunscreen the last time I was looking for one.

I often choose sunscreens after looking at the sunscreen filters, I don’t generally care too much about the other ingredients which may or not be a bad thing. But what I look for is a sunscreen that protects against both types of UVA rays (and UVB rays too). Some sunscreens only partially protect against all of the range of UVA rays, which automatically rules them out for me. It’s another reason I like mineral sunscreens because the mineral filters protect against all the types of UV rays (UVA1, UVA2 and UVB) so it’s easy (for a lazy person like me) to check if it protects well against UVA rays. Phew I wrote a lot of boring stuff, right? Unsurprisingly I mostly chose this sunscreen because it was a mineral sunscreen and I had good experience with the last Secret Key sunscreen. Not the most exciting reason, but somehow this sunscreen appealed more than any of the others I had been researching, so read on if you’re curious to see how well it performed.

[REVIEW] Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+/PA+++

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+PA+++ Review

Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+/PA+++ Review:

To be honest, I’ve always been quite intrigued with Yadah’s skincare line. It’s not the most raved about brand, I think, but it does pride itself on being “natural” and sensitive skin-friendly, so that certainly got my attention. However, since I try not to spend impulsively in general (although I do have strong urges… don’t we all?) I couldn’t really find a reason to purchase anything from the brand because I had other products to use up first. So when I received this in a gift exchange among friends last year, I was very excited.

Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion SPF 40 PA++ Review

Klairs Mid-Day Blue Sun Lotion SPF 40 / PA++ Review:

I have tried some other products from Klairs, (like the Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop & the Supple Preparation Facial Toner) and I am very satisfied with those. Klairs is a well known brand for sensitive skins, which already has my attention, and the luxurious ingredients in this formula totally made me give it a go.

[REVIEW] New 2018 OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50+/PA++++

OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50 PA Review

OMI Menturm Japan Verdio UV Moisture Milk SPF50+/PA++++ was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When it comes to sunscreens, I admit that I’m quite partial to Japanese formulations. Due to their high SPF/PA ratings to block out harmful UV rays, cosmetic elegance, double function as makeup primers and availability in local stores, it’s no wonder that I always end up picking out one or two to try when I’m low on sun protection.

Hence, when I was approached by Cosmeperks to try out a recently launched sunscreen from Menturm, I was intrigued right off the bat and agreed almost instantaneously. Putting honesty at the forefront of all my reviews, did this sunscreen manage to flirt its way into my “forever repurchase” list?

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream Review:

The cream is the last step in Etude House’s Moistfull Collagen skincare series which claims to aid in firmness, elasticity and hydration.

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% Review

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% Review:

I have had successes with a few of The Ordinary Products and naturally I kept going back to the product range to see which others may suit me. I have also read a lot about Vitamin C and its benefits when applied on skin, besides taking as an oral supplement.

The Ordinary has quite a number of Vitamin C products and I was confused to which to try. I finally settled for The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% because it comes in a serum form and I do like the dropper system.

Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Review

Estee Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion Review:

I’ve been flirting with this essence since January 2014 when it was first released, however for this product to reach the shelves of EU it took a while, as essences are usually promoted and developed mostly for the Asian markets. I finally managed to get a bottle on March 2018 from Notino for 60.90 euro and I’ve been using it twice a day since.

[REVIEW] New 2018 Missha Bee Pollen Renew Sheet Mask

Missha Bee Pollen Renew Sheet Mask Review

Missha Bee Pollen Renew Sheet Mask was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I literally got my hands on this mask the day I heard about it, and used it the next day. My skin loves honey and related stuff, and I feel that Missha is a very appropriate brand for my skin in general, as it focuses on things that my skin really needs (what I mean is, generally it’s for not teenage skin). I was really excited, and trying this mask made me happy. Also, spoiler alert, now I want to try everything else from the collection.

Mamonde Camellia Antiaging Flower Lab Essence Mask Review

Mamonde Camellia Antiaging Flower Lab Essence Mask Review:

Mamonde (which I love) released a bunch of new mask sheets (which we all love) and they are based on flowers (love) and their essences (aaaah) to make it even stronger and more effective. The design is also pretty enough, and I’m very excited! The first one I decided to try was the Camellia one – but not because of the flower, because of the characteristics and claims instead.
